Subject: Wonderful
This story is such a dark and tragic love affair that my eyes watering just to think about it. Luv the story and the reading is exceptional. The girl that reads the book is fantastic and it made all the difference to the story. Her voice is compelling and made get lost into the story.
For the record, I only register so I could give this review LoL,,, this is how much I liked this book and the quality of the recording.

Subject: Good story, wonderfully read
An interesting story that paints a vivid picture in mind.

Glorianna (Elizabeth Kett) has a lovely voice and a subtly expressive reading style. The sheer beauty of her voice greatly enhances my pleasure in listening to a story. She conveys emotion naturally without overwhelming my internal visualization of it. The story flows into my mind as if on a gentle breeze.

Subject: Interesting book, very good recording
I found this book very interesting, though the ending didn't hold up as well as the more psychological parts. The American-sounding female reader gives a fine, expressive reading.

Subject: Great story and narration
I agree with the other reviewer. Good story and Eliabeth Klett is a fantastic narrator.

Subject: Carmilla
Went through the pain of registering yet another password, etc., etc. just to give high praise for this readers work, and the story. This book is engrossing and ahead of its time. Less dense than Dracula, but with a real sense of place and character. The reader does a fine job not only with the basics of reading for the audience, but protraying the character without getting in the way of the story. Thanks to this reader and I will be looking for more of her stuff.
